KIEV (Reuters) - Pro-Russian militants have seized at least 400 handguns and 20 automatic weapons from a police station they are occupying in the east Ukrainian city of Slaviansk, police said on Saturday.
"The aim of the takeover was the guns," a police statement issued from the capital Kiev said. "They are giving these guns to participants in the protest in Slaviansk."
A Reuters photographer at the building said he had not seen the attackers handing out weapons.
